NBA FREE PICK: Take Nets. According to latest NBA trends, the Celtics are 11-23-1 ATS in their last 35 games playing on 0 days rest,  2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall and are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference. Brooklyn is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, home team is 4-1 ATS L5 in series and favorite is 5-1 ATS L6 in series.

The Celtics might be without point guard Rajon Rondo, who is hampered by a sprained ankle. Both team are a good roll, having won three straight games. But the Celtics would miss Rondo, who is leading the NBA in assists with 12.5 per game. Leandro Barbosa stepped in for the three-time All-Star and scored 16 of Boston's 47 bench points last night against Utah. The Nets are led by Joe Johnson and point guard Deron Williams, who scored season highs of 25 and 26 respectively. Brooklyn center Brook Lopez is off to a quick start with 17.5 points per game, 6.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks. Without Rondo, or even with a gimpy Rondo, the Celtics will have a very tough time on the road against the Nets.
